The Equine Hospital Manual (1405130164) cover image
The must-have resource drawing together all aspects of hospital care of the horse and specialist techniques in equine medicine. Written by a team of over 30 international experts working at the cutting edge of equine medicine and surgery. The emphasis is on practical, easy-to-access information, with a sound basis in evidence based medicine and full references for further enquiry.

The Equine Hospital Manual covers the range of procedures used on hospitalized adult horses and foals from the simple to the advanced. The book is liberally illustrated with photographs and line drawings.

Covering:


  • Basic skills including physical examination, blood collection, and bandaging
  • Advanced skills including mechanical ventilation, lung biopsy and cardiac output measurement
  • Designing and setting up an equine hospital
  • Biosecurity
  • Therapeutic drugs used in horses and their doses
  • Nutrition for hospital patients, including TPN and PPN
  • Fluid therapy – choices, amounts and pitfalls
  • Anaesthesia – equipment, techniques and post-operative care including analgesia

Reflecting the substantial trend in recent years to treat horses in a hospital rather than in the field, this book provides all you need to know whether you have facilities to treat one or one hundred horses.

"The strengths of the book are the ease with which information can be found, the chapters on procedures, and the appendices. This textbook is reasonably priced and is a good addition to the library of veterinary technicians, veterinary students, or practicing veterinarians." - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, June 2009

"This textbook provides a comprehensive reference for all members of a team involved in care of hospitalised equine patients.... covers many of the essential techniques used in equine hospitals and will provide an invaluable reference for anyone either starting an equine hospital, or working in one.... I wholeheartedly recommend The Equine Hospital Manual." - Veterinary Times, May 2008
